Kings of the Wyld

The Band, Book One

By Nicholas Eames

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A retired group of warriors must get the band back together for one last seemingly impossible mission in this rollicking fantasy debut

***SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 GEMMELL AWARD FOR BEST DEBUT***
***WINNER OF FANTASY FACTION'S BEST FANTASY BOOK OF 2017 AWARD***

'A fantastic read, a rollicking, page-turning, edge-of-your-seat road-trip of a book' - John Gwynne

'In short: it rocks . . . I finished this book in one night. If I could, I'd see the tour, and buy the t-shirt' - B&N Sci-fi and Fantasy Blog

'Could very well be the debut of the year' - Fantasy Book Review

Clay Cooper and his band were once the best of the best - the meanest, dirtiest, most feared and admired crew of mercenaries this side of the Heartwyld.

But their glory days are long past; the mercs have grown apart and grown old, fat, drunk - or a combination of the three. Then a former bandmate turns up at Clay's door with a plea for help: his daughter Rose is trapped in a city besieged by an enemy horde one hundred thousand strong and hungry for blood. Rescuing Rose is the kind of impossible mission that only the very brave or the very stupid would sign up for.

It's time to get the band back together for one last tour across the Wyld.

LOOK OUT FOR BLOODY ROSE, THE SECOND BOOK IN THE BAND SERIES:

'Bloody Rose solidifies what Kings of the Wyld proved. Eames writes like a hurricane and has a voice like no one else in this genre' - Sam Sykes

Biographical Notes

Nicholas Eames was born to parents of infinite patience and unstinting support in Wingham, Ontario. Though he attended college for theatre arts, he gave up acting to pursue the infinitely more attainable profession of 'epic fantasy novelist'. Kings of the Wyld is his first novel. Nicholas loves black coffee, neat whiskey, the month of October and video games. He currently lives in Ontario, Canada, and is probably writing at this very moment.

Brilliant debut novel . . . Eames has cranked the thrills of epic fantasy up to 11 . . . Moreover, the plot is emotionally rewarding, original, and hilarious. Eames clearly set out to write something fun to read and he has succeeded spectacularly — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Manages to be a comedy, an adventure tale, a consideration on growing older, and a sendup of fantasy conventions, all at the same time. It also has heart. In short: it rocks . . . I finished this book in one night. If I could, I'd see the tour, and buy the t-shirt. Instead, I'll have to content myself with waiting for the sequel, and reading it again — B&N SCI-FI AND FANTASY BLOG
An outstanding debut which will make you laugh and cry and hold your breath. This is a book that has it all — K. J. Parker
Absolutely awesome. If the Beatles held a concert tomorrow (with all the necromancy required for that to happen), it still wouldn't be as good a 'getting the band back together' story as this. Full of heroes, humor, and heart. — Jon Hollins, author of DRAGON LORDS: FOOL'S GOLD
It was a fantastic read, a rollicking, page-turning, edge-of-your-seat road-trip of a book. Great characters, loveable rogues that I genuinely cared about and all manner of fantastical monsters. All spiced with a sly sense of humour that had me smiling throughout. Wonderful — John Gwynne, author of MALICE
A promising, fast-paced debut that balances classic quest fantasy with modern sensibilities and liberal doses of humor. Huzzah! — Alex Marshall, author of A CROWN FOR COLD SILVER
Kings of the Wyld took me back to my Dungeons and Dragons days. It has well-crafted characters long past their best but still fighting, non-stop fantasy action and welcome touches of humour. Great reading! — Ian Irvine
Nicholas Eames brings brazen fun and a rock & roll sensibility to the fantasy genre — Sebastien de Castell, author of TRAITOR'S BLADE
I had a brilliant time reading this book. Kings of the Wyld is escapism of my favourite type - noble quests, edge of the seat action and well-rounded, likeable characters that carve out their own unique definition of "family" — FORBIDDEN PLANET

Kings of the Wyld does everything right . . . Nicholas Eames knows how to write and, more importantly, he knows how to pace and structure a novel. He mixes action and humor in equal measure, and weaves genuine emotion into the heroics. It's a fun novel, but one where sorrow and melancholy are always lurking just under the narrative . . . I loved the characters, loved the journey and even loved the climax . . . Kings of the Wyld is a fantastically fun read, from beginning to end, and I am already looking forward to the sequel. — BEAUTY IN RUINS
Kings of the Wyld is rollicking, explosive fun from cover to cover . . . written with exuberance and elan. Always assured, Eames strikes the same balance as Pratchett at his best, drawing humour from the conventions and tropes of high fantasy while also clearly loving them — BLUE BOOK BALLOON
This will be one of THE books of 2017. Brilliant, innovative, immersive and just pure fun to read. — THE BOOK PLANK
There are gladiatorial arenas, aerial battles, pissed off dragons, crazy portal-hopping madcap assassins . . . It is goofy and silly and fast-moving and explodey. And it does all those things well . . . Wyld also works hard to make its characters meaningful - you're not just along for the craaaaazy ride, you actually care about the other passengers — PORNOKITSCH
I absolutely loved this book — Anna Stephens, author of GODBLIND
Amid all the airship battles and forest chases there's a vulnerability, a charm born from affection and nostalgia — SFX, five star review

We grow to care so much about these men who once fought for glory, but now do so for each other, and for what is right.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – The Original Screenplay

J.K. Rowling
Authors:
J.K. Rowling

At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world. This second original screenplay from J.K. Rowling, illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima, expands on earlier events that helped shaped the wizarding world, with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.

Calypso

David Sedaris
Authors:
David Sedaris

If you've ever laughed your way through David Sedaris's cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you're getting with Calypso. You'd be wrong. When he buys a beach house on the Carolina coast, Sedaris envisions long, relaxing vacations spent playing board games and lounging in the sun with those he loves most. And life at the Sea Section, as he names the vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: it's impossible to take a vacation from yourself.With Calypso, Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality. Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny - it's a book that can make you laugh 'til you snort, the way only family can. Sedaris's writing has never been sharper, and his ability to shock readers into laughter unparalleled. But much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future.This is beach reading for people who detest beaches, required reading for those who loathe small talk and love a good tumour joke. Calypso is simultaneously Sedaris's darkest and warmest book yet - and it just might be his very best.
